They also include the artist, album, song name, length, and other track information. Basically they contain the playlist. They are used to display track information while playing music. Key features of the software include some useful dropdown menus, with all the essential information visible for the user. The loaded files are catalogued by name, extension, input size and output size. APL files can also be converted to other formats such as AAC by using converters.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .apl. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
